Abstract (en)

The invention relates to an expandable conduit-guide (1) providing a leak-tight conduit through a skin (3) between an inside of a corpus (2) and an outside of the corpus (2). The body (100) of the conduit-guide (1) is constructed from a braided-wire (150) so that the conduit-guide (1) is capable of actively expanding from a closed diameter (D1) to an opened diameter (D2) with the placement of the medical device (4) positioned within the lumen (110) and passively collapsing from the opened diameter (D2) to the closed diameter (D1) upon withdrawal of the medical device (4) under a spring load of the braided-wire (150).
